I purchased a used receiver that had not been deregistered. I tried using it on my original phone and it did not work. It seems that I cannot deregister the newly purchased receiver unless I had the base that came with it.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The "END" and "#" key combination can be used for several purposes:
1) If wanting to use an ALREADY REGISTERED HANDSET on an alternate base, and if if the INITIAL BASE isn't available to deregister the handset:
1a) Press "END" + "#" until it for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)
1b) Choose the "Base Unavailable" option
1c) That'll deregister the CURRENT HANDSET so that it can be re-registered on ANY base.
2) If a BASE has a handset registered to it which you no longer want registered but the registered handset is missing or broken:
2a) Grab another WORKING handset which is properly REGISTERED to the BASE in question
2b) Press and hold the "END" + "#" key for 5+ seconds (wait for it to beep)
2c) Choose the "Deregister HS" menu option
2d) Pick the REGISTERED HANDSET # to de-register. (Every other registered handset EXCEPT THE ONE YOU'RE ON will appear in the list!)
One has to completely deregister all handset by pressing end and # keys together till complete de registration is shown on handset screen. if the de registration is not done as above stated method the hand set will not register will show connecting on hand set screen.
holding down end+# keys at the same time on the phone for about 10
secs (you will hear a beep) will deregister the handset. If you have a
dead handset and want to deregister it from the base, you have to reset
the base. unplug the phoneline and power. hold down the "delete
message" key, plug power back in. about 10 secs later, you will hear a
long beep (theres a short beep upon powerup as well). At this point all
handsets are deregistred and you will have to reregister them with the
end+# trick. this way when #1 handset is dead, you can make a working
one #1 and get the broken one fixed
BTW, this is a woot warranty, not uniden warranty. however the
uniden rep gave me the number to the people who refurb (rox0rz!) these.
I'll post an update when I finally get ahold of them (and the number if
its actually helpful)
OU might need to deregister the hand set first by holding down the red
end (hang up key) and keep it down while holding the # key. If
deregister wont work use base unavailable and yes, you are sure twice.
List the handset numbers of those working handsets
Using a WORKING handset follow these directions

replace a handset with another one, you must first clear the

PUT THE HANDSET IN THE BASE CHARGER AND IT SHOULD REGISTER
On most models you can find an option in the menu for De-register?

This sounds like the register-deregister problem elsewhere on this page. Try holding down the "end" and "#" buttons for about 6 seconds to deregister the phones and then reregister them.
I had this problem too and it worked for me.
